My goodness how does that naughty Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup do it? The nail shades Jade and Particuliere were such smash hits it saw women scratching each others eyes out to get a bottle and I was stopped 3 times down Bond Street, after I had a Jade manicure at Chanel HQ. Now that Peter P has done it again.

Y’all know I’m a sucker for all things Chanel but when these 3 little beauties landed on my desk- I did do a little gasp. Chanel’s new nail polish (oh polish doesn’t sound posh enough, will refer to it as Le Vernis) collection Les Khakis De Chanel in Khaki Vert, Khaki Rose and Khaki Brun, £19 each, available from Chanel Boutiques and Selfridges call 0207 493 3836 for stockist details, are quite frankly fabulous. The collection was created in honour of last week’s Vogue's Fashion Night Out and is fiercceeee. I shall be rotating the shades and wearing them on my nails during London Fashion Week -look out for my blogs and Twitter updates @atehjewel from Friday!

The Khaki Vert is actually really flattering for all skin tones, just think of it as a cool J brand Khaki jean, you can dress it up or dress it down. For black skin tones, the Khaki Rose is one of the best chocolaty nudes I have ever seen and gives you that milky chic mannequin hand that I love. Khaki scaredy cats should try the Khaki Brun, which feels like a mix of the two shades and gives a nod to all things camouflage. Well done Chanel you have hit it out of the park yet again, I salute you!


  1. I ordered Vert and can't wait to get it. Great Review!!!

  2. Thanks so much Dee Dee you will love it!

  4. Hi Kaza I get press samples so Dee Dee where did you order your bottles??? Also Kaza call the stockist number if you are in the UK to try and track down a bottle. Happy hunting!
